Learning The Sport of Lawn Bowling

Contrary to what you might think, lawn bowling isn't a game of pins, spares, and strikes outside in the elements. It's more like a cross between bocce ball and curling.  I had the chance to try my hand at it Thursday morning during the CBS58 Morning News at Milwaukee's Lake Park.  

The goal is get your bowls as close to the white ball, or jack, as possible.  The common belief is this is a game with a minimum level of physical fitness and mental toughness to play but can take years to master. 

Classes are offered, and there's even a local league.  Corporate parties are also available.  To learn more about lawn bowling, just go to our website, cbs58.com.
